Quick Tips

Cooking Tip Icon

Cooking Tip: Play around with the combination of oats to milk ratio. Like an oatmeal with a thicker consistency? Use more oats. Prefer it liquidy? Go higher on the milk.

Keep it Healthy Icon

Keep it Healthy: Add a variety of goodies into the oatmeal when preparing it the night before like dried fruit, unsweetened coconut, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, chia seeds, etc. Chopped fresh fruit, like bananas, go brown if added the night before; it’s best to top with fresh fruit right before eating.

Tip Icon

Tip: Baking raw, dry oats for 1 hour at 250F can help make sure foods are safe and prevent food-born illnesses.

Tip Icon

Tip: Natural sweeteners such as maple syrup or honey are a great way to add a touch of sweetness instead of sugar. Even a little bit of fruit juice like orange juice can provide sweetness.
